& we’re off…… Getting the ball rolling, the Red devils hosted Leicester &, true to his word, Puel’s lad, Maguire did go to Manchester. For a couple of hours on Friday evening. Taking the lead from a 3rd minute Pogba penalty, the Untidies had to wait until the 83rd minute for Luke Shaw (yes you read that right) to double the lead. The foxes were given a Vardy lifeline in stoppage time, but it was too late to grab a point. Having spent all of Newcastle’s TV cash on a department store chain Mike Ashley faced protests ahead of their match. & Spurs showed them that there’s no need to buy players (if your team’s good enough already), winning 1-2. Bournemouth put Colin Wanker’s Cardiff to the sword & premier league favourites, Crystal Palace welcomed Fulham to the top flight with a 0-2 victory. Chelski bounced back from the Community Shield defeat & put 3 past Huddersfield while Brighton didn’t even appear to show up to their loss at Watford & Everton, having had Jigglyelka sent off in the first half, could only hold on for a point Against newbies, Wolves. Sunday saw a strengthened Liverpool take on a new look Wet Spam &, surprise surprise, Salad opened his account for the season in the 19th minute as the Kop paid tribute. Mané added 2 more & Sturridge rounded off the rout with his first touch of the game to put the Reds on top spot. At St Mary’s it was a tale of 2 keepers as Hart & McCarthy made 9 saves between them to collect clean sheets in a goalless draw. & rounding off the weekend, Pep appeared to have pulled players names out of a hat for his starting XI against Arsenal. But Sterling & Silva were on target against a new look Gunners who were lucky not to have Petr Cech score an own goal.
As is the way in FPL’s 1st GW, the
Tend to head to the same team & in this instance it’s Mav787 ’s Alisson’s Big Gloves with the early accolades. The opening tables are as follows
Of course, this will all change next week as we all ditch our wet spam players.
Well, in the shed we have some left over wings & chocolate (albeit a bit soft) to munch on while we regroup for next weekend. We’re quite pleased we didn’t burn anything down this week or poison anyone with the BBQ, although we did err on the well done side. Now all that’s left to do is to clear up the plastic glasses & bottles before we head on over to MyHeartland where emilystrange will host GW2. Thanks all for playing & stopping by.
